Today was very productive, I got all my parts together and swapped out the original suspension for a completely new setup. These are the new parts I have fitted to the RS-X...
S13 JIC Coilovers 8kg
S13 Lower Control Arms
S13 Rack ends (shortened 10mm, thread extended 10mm)
R31 Skyline castor rods
S13 SR Turbo calipers
DBA 5000 slotted rotors
Aurora springs 2.5" drop, 5kg
KYB Excel-G Shock absorbers
Wheels & Rubber:
Nissan 180SX Type-X Rims
Kumho KU-18 Tyres 205/60/R15
Original springs Vs. Aurora Srings:
Rear springs in. I'm thinking maybe 25mm worth of spacers if I decide to continue running these rims.
Front bits are out...
New setup Vs. Original setup...
New setup bolted up...
And by the time I had finished fitting everything up, bleeding the brakes, and getting everything sorted, it was dark. So I got the best pictures I could of the car rocking the new suspension setup. Enjoy...
All it needs now is a wheel alignment and I'm set. Can't wait to get out and drive it and see how it handles, time for it's first hills run I think!
Next step.... Body & Paint!
